Another accident occurs in dangerous San Francisco crosswalk

Even though reports of pedestrian accidents appear in the news at an alarming rate, people continue to suffer from serious injuries and even loss of life after being hit by a vehicle. San Francisco is no stranger to these tragedies, which take place for a variety of reasons, from obscured road signs to a reckless drunk driver. Anyone who has been personally impacted by a pedestrian accident should closely review their options, which may include filing a lawsuit.

As a 20-year-old pedestrian was recently trying to cross a Sunset District road in San Francisco, she was struck by car. The woman was able to survive the accident, which occurred in the afternoon, but required medical care for her non-life-threatening injuries.

Although the driver of the vehicle claims they did not see the pedestrian until it was too late, they did receive a citation for failing to yield. The accident marks the third time this year that a pedestrian has been hit while trying to cross the road in this particular crosswalk, which some local residents believe is unacceptably dangerous.

Broken bones, head trauma or a crippling back injury are some of the physical problems that impact pedestrians who are fortunate enough to survive an accident. However, the financial hardships that stem from medical treatment and job loss can make recovery even more complicated. Sadly, some people pass away, which can also lead to tremendous emotional and financial difficulty for their loved ones. Anyone who is dealing with this and wants to take legal action could benefit from discussing the details of their situation with an attorney.

Client Reviews

    I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm!


    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.


    Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did.

    I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
